'''London County Council''' ('''LCC''') was the principal local government body for the County of London
throughout its existence from 1889 to 1965, and the first London-wide general municipal authority to be directly elected. It covered the area today known as Inner London
and was replaced by the Greater London Council
. The LCC was the largest, most significant and most ambitious English municipal authority of its day.
